  • I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, it is a very beautiful place that will always give historical perspective to any visit to this part of France. 
  • I haven't seen the Castle inside. I bought the ticket just to visit the gardens that I loved so much! Not to be missed!

  • The name, expect Valmer Château as Loire of traveler an imposing castle building. One does not find it here unfortunately, because it already fell victim to a fire years ago. A lovingly designed Park but compensated for the somewhat tedious journey by bicycle.

  • Beautiful garden! some parts of the Park are reminiscent of the gardens Italian: it is very marked. Garden to him alone is worth the visit and to the wire of the promenade there are lots of very pleasant surprises. The owner is almost untraceable plant collection: it practical exchanges of seeds with a large Conservatory of plants located in Russia. The young gardener has a remarkable knowledge of gardening.
